JS CodeRetreat: facilitator’s skills

Soooo many people are asking us which skills and abilities a facilitator should have. Here we are then, with a small list of suggestions!

 
General skills
First of all, he/she (probably “he”…) should be able to speak in public, trying to give a personal touch to every talk. He (I’ll just continue assuming that the facilitator […]

Our JS CodeRetreat: sharing knowledge from both sides

“Knowledge sharing”: even though I’m getting used to this mindset, this is something that still surprises me quite a lot. Our JS CodeRetreat was all about sharing: we shared our TDD knowledge, giving you all the chance to attend a free course for an entire day, and you shared your experience and much more during the […]

Part 4. GADGETS

We’re making good progress in the organization of our event: according to our official website and to the Facebook event we should already have 35 participants. Right now, our main issue is related to the gadgets: which ones should we choose? And, most importantly, how many?

My First Softwerkskammer Meetups

More or less regularly I have been going to various kinds of meetups over the last years. From tech to biz. I enjoy the tech ones most, I guess. The learnings there are right away “actionable” as the lean dude would say. And somehow (way too late) I finally found the software craftsmanship meetup Softwerkskammer […]

Part 3. Our MINDMAP

  Here’s how we decided to structure our mindmap. Seems complex? Well, it’s not at all, it only contains a considerable number of colored bubbles. Let me explain you a bit better the reasoning underlying the map.

Part 2. How to organize an event: our JS CodeRetreat

I love to organize events! I organized pretty big parties before coming here, and I loved to plan graduation parties for my friends (in the North-East of Italy graduation parties are held in a very folkloric way, not common at all… I’ve never seen anything like those parties and behaviors in the rest of the […]

Part 1. How to organize an event: our JS CodeRetreat

The question was: how could I help if I didn’t understand at all what it was about? For this reason, some days ago […]

What is WAC and how it could help us

At Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, @uxebu attended the WAC event to catch up with the future of WAC. WAC, short for Wholesale Applications Community, is a group of global mobile operators. They provide, among other things, a spec for their correspondent web application runtime “WAC”. Recently the new WAC 2.0 Spec got out […]

BarCamp Munich 2010 – seen through JavaScript and mobile eyes

First and foremost big thanks to the organizers and sponsors of this awesome BarCamp.

SWDC 2010 Stockholm

Thanks to Peter Peter Svensson for organizing and making SWDC 2010 in Stockholm happen and especially thanks for inviting us to speak there. We had a blast. A crowd of about 100 people saw some very interesting talks, ranging from Node.js, YQL, Chrome extensions, HTML5 to PhoneGap, I guess everybody heard something new and interesting.

EventNinja – A Mobile Cross Platform App

The app runs on iPhone, Android, Palm’s WebOS, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Nokia S60, Vodafone 360 phones and we are still adding to the list. But the most interesting fact is: it’s all the same […]
